2. There is no specific distance. However, the standard has claimed that normal people walk for 10 seconds at 55 ft / 16 meters. This is the origin of most domestic standards of 15 meters. Going back to the first question, why emphasize the type of eyewash, the reason is that if you can’t reach the emergency spray and eye wash of the water supply for each hazardous chemical operation position within 15 meters. You can equip unplumbed eyewash or emergency spray tank.

The purpose of these short-term eyewash devices is to allow the injured person to initiate an eye-washing emergency procedure within 10 seconds, and during the eyewashing and spraying process, move to an emergency spray facility with continuous water supply for all 15 minutes. rinse.
